Born Chantal Francesca Passamonte in South Africa in 1970, Mira arrived in London in 1991 to pursue a career in music.
She worked as a promoter and DJ while doing publicity for Warp, before becoming one of the first women to sign with the label as an artist.
Mira dropped a few singles and EPs before releasing her first LP One on One in 2000. She would go on to put out six more albums and several EPs of various experimental styles and textures.
After a long hiatus spent working in film, theater, and mixed media, she returned to Warp in 2019 with the Utopia EP.
While some of her most experimental work was on wax, Mira also made music for art installations.
